Ohio raccoon feces are predominantly found outside of homes, and most especially where they hibernate or forage for food and shelter. Raccoon feces are associated with several diseases including, roundworm and Leptospirosis. Gastro-intestinal disorders, fevers , and constantly going to the toiler to defecate, are some of the symptoms of eating food or drinking water contaminated with Cleveland raccoon feces.

Raccoon feces are characterized by large sizes and they occur in piles. The turds of the feces are not single and distinct, but they often come with dark colours but such can vary depending on the presence of roughages. As the feces age, it becomes lighter and chalky in colour. The ends of the Cleveland raccoon feces are quite rounded and will never appear with pointed ends. One of the commonest components of raccoon feces is that they often have berries inside. Unlike feces of smaller animals such as Ohio mice, squirrels and rats, raccoons do not have fecal pellets; rather they excrete large and long fecal substances that are often black in colour.

Raccoon feces can mostly be found near walls of buildings, especially when the buildings are close to their forage sites or they have been abandoned. Ohio raccoon feces can be found on leaves of damaged trees, they can also be found beside garbage bins or cans that have been tripped over by the animals. The feces can be detected on leaves or on sand as raccoons often prefer to poop on a comfortable place.

Raccoons are best captured through traps, and most especially with the use of body-gripping traps that do not injure the Cleveland animal, but only trap them until they can be relocated. Raccoons can infect pets with all sorts of diseases and most especially rabies . You need to keep pets indoors, especially during feeding time because Raccoons may get aggressive against smaller pets when they share foods. Ohio raccoons can also be trapped with the use of Hinged one-door traps where the raccoon is automatically locked inside a cage trap once it steps on the trigger. Traps used in capturing raccoons require special settings and hiding technique- the animal may be lured into the cage through a bait.
